Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Budget-friendly functional trainer
  • Super portable
  • Versatile: can do a lot of different exercises with the OYO Nova
  • Comes with exercise videos, a wall chart of popular exercises, and a nutrition guide
  • Good for people with a beginner fitness level
What needs improvement ...
  • Mostly made out of plastic
  • Range of motion feels short compared to using free weights
  • Recently off of Kickstarter, so stock varies and shipping can take a while

Product Summary

The OYO NOVA Gym is a unique piece of home gym equipment powered by the same technology used to keep astronauts fit in space. This compact cable machine uses something called SpiraFlex technology to provide up to 40 pounds of resistance in a small device that weighs less than 5 pounds. Using FlexPacks, small discs that create resistance against nylon-coated steel cables, the OYO NOVA Gym allows trainees to perform nearly 200 different exercises.

Because the NOVA Gym is mostly made out of plastic, we’re not super confident it’ll last a very long time, especially with high-volume use. However, the product does come with a three-year warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee. That boosts our confidence some!

The concept behind the NOVA Gym is cool and this is a great product for people who are looking for an ultra-portable piece of home gym equipment that they can use to train all muscle groups. We don’t recommend it for people who are used to training with very heavy weights because they’re unlikely to feel challenged by the 40 pounds of resistance available with the OYO NOVA. Still, this is a nifty gadget and definitely fulfills a unique market gap.
